A support group for men suffering from stress or mental heath problems in South Devon will soon be expanding into Exeter and Plymouth.
Andy's Man Club in Newton Abbot, which meets every Monday at the Liaise Bistro, says it has already saved the lives of men contemplating taking their own lives.
Former prison officer Paul Curtis suffered from overwhelming depression and says Andy's Man Club has saved his life.
Every day I was just putting the same mask on. Yes, I had problems but I just forgot about them and just got on with it.
Watch 'Man Club'
The club is described as "a talking group, a place for men to come together in a safe environment to talk about issues and problems they have faced or are currently facing".
Its slogan is "It's okay to talk."
The owner of the Newton Abbot bistro, where the group meets, says it challenges stereotypes that men should "man up" and just carry on.
The idea behind it is just trying to break the stigma that men are and able to talk to each other without the stigma of going 'I'm too macho not to talk'.
Most people who are thinking of taking their own life have shown warning signs beforehand.
These can include becoming depressed, showing sudden changes in behaviour, talking about wanting to die and feelings of hopelessness.
These feelings do improve and can be treated.
